Porsche Crest 911 glass seals (vs. 964?)

Hello all,

I am about to de-glass my '88 911 Carrera Coupe for paint...and when I replace the front/rear glass, I would like to replace it with a seal that doesn't have the metal trim in it.

I'm thinking that I saw somewhere that the 964 trim was just flat rubber (which I want)... but I'm not sure, and I cant find a post to this effect. I know in the VW world there was "cal look" seals which eliminated the chrome trim strip from the seals.

Any advice/info?

Thanks!
Scott

You can put the 993 windshield seals and windshield in which have no trim. It leaves a section at the bottom that requires some custom work but has been done and works.

There are some threads on it.

I know Axiom (Rudy I believe) in LA does it.

993 windshield.

Watching.
I need to replace the cracked screen in my 88 Carrera as well, but not so interested in "custom mods". I was sort of hoping that a 964 glass and seals would be a direct fit.
A further complication for me is that the screen would have to come out again in less than a year for a planned color change. How easy is it to remove and replace the later type screens that are glued in place?

Hmmm... I definitely don't want 993 custom issues, nor a glue-in windshield (although in retrospect, that sounds kinda nice)... I'll do some more research to see if the 964 seals are different, or possibly measure some VW seals, since I'm assuming the mechanics of sealing the glass in the frame is the same with the VW seal as it is with the P-car seal.

The jury is still out but there are numerous threads about both the 964 and 993 glass/ seals applied to pre-89 aircooled cars.....the most common consensus is that the 964 glass/seals will not work and the 993/seals will.... but not 100% of the time, if you look at responses. The glass/seal combo must match however...if you continue investigating.....don't use (say) 993 glass with 964 seals.

No, it's not just as simple as dropping in 964 glass....more is involved.

Maybe I miscommunicated. I intend to keep my existing, good 1988 911 glass. I simply want a seal that doesnt have metal trim in it. I think my research has lead me to the 89+ seal, which supposedly doesn't have the metal strip and should work with my 1988 911 glass.

It won't work properly. The 964 glass is a different size than the 911 glass.

If you are going to keep your 911 glass, you should continue to use the 911 trimmed seal.

The 911 glass will not seat properly in the 964 seal, especially at the corners. Been there, done that.

Good luck,
Tim

Thank you for that Tim. That is what I was looking for.

If you dont mind my asking...what did you end up doing in your previous endeavor?
